Talks I am looking forward to at JavaOne 2017

It’s that time of year again! JavaOne is right around the corner and this will be my second time attending. I learnt quite a bit of useful tips and tricks last time and cannot wait to go back. So in anticipation I thought I would share which talks I am most looking forward to in the 2017 conference.

Meet Apache NetBeans [CON6160] Sunday, Oct 01, 10:00 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. | Moscone West – Room 2008: NetBeans Track
Have you heard about the NetBeans IDE being donated by Oracle to the Apache Foundation? Well we have and are very excited about the news! Find out more about the latest developments in the NetBeans community and how you can get involved in this session. There will be a variety of quick topics discussed including the NetBeans Days that are held all around the world like the one in London.
Tracks:  Developer Community Day: NetBeans
Experience Level:  Introductory

Powerful Lessons from Top Java EE Experts [CON7624] Sunday, Oct 01, 4:00 p.m. – 4:45 p.m. | Moscone West – Room 2002: Java User Group Track
This session introduces the world’s top Java EE developers in a panel discussion where you will hear about their Java EE secrets and powerful lessons, as well as challenges and how to overcome them. Come and learn how and why you should adopt Java EE 8 today.

Focus on Content: Understanding Developer-Oriented Content [CON6800] Monday, Oct 01, 11:00 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. | Moscone West – Room 2009
Not one of the most technically driven talks but it stood out to me as a talk that may cover issues people didn’t think they had. This session focuses on the core types of content, how to prioritize what content you provide, and how to relate them to your company goals.
Tracks:  Developer Relations Track
Experience Level:  Introductory

How to Write and Ship Better Code with the Apache NetBeans IDE [BOF3906] Monday, Oct 02, 6:30 p.m. – 7:15 p.m. | Moscone West – Room 2007
This talk is one I have to attend since I am part of the duo presenting it. The mantra of NetBeans is that it works out of the box. It contains a wealth of features, tools, and options to help put you ahead with your development. You can reconfigure NetBeans to match your exact preferences and remove features you do not need. The productivity enhancements in NetBeans include a wide range of formatting, code completion, hints, templates, and keyboard options that enable you to write bug-free code quickly and easily. In this session, find out how to get NetBeans working harder for you. Also learn why so many developers have already switched to NetBeans.
Tracks:  Java Development Tools
Experience Level:  Intermediate

Apache Maven BOF [BOF1415] Tuesday, Oct 03, 7:45 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. | Moscone West – Room 2007
Want to have a hand in deciding which direction Apache Maven should move in? Well this talk could be your chance to do just that. You will get a chance to talk directly to some of the developers behind Apache Maven. Ask questions, discuss issues that have been pressing on you and express opinions on how you think Maven is doing and where it should be going in the future.
Tracks:  Java Development Tools
Experience Level:  Intermediate

Designing for Modularity with Java 9 [CON2606] Wednesday, Oct 04, 10:45 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. | Moscone West – Room 2016
One of the biggest topics of discussion this year has been the move to Java 9 and in particular the modular system it is introducing. As with every design principle, modularity requires thought and trade-offs to really reap the benefits. This talk covers good coding practices like hiding dependencies and avoiding cycles along with finding out about trade-offs to help you make the best design choices.
Tracks:  Core Java Platform
Experience Level:  Intermediate

These are only a few of the talks and conferences I cannot wait to see and give at JavaOne. There are also Hands-on Labs (HOL) where you can try out the code and technologies you are learning about. If you are going to JavaOne this year then hopefully I will see you there.
